WOLCOTT, Ind. (WLFI) — The Cavaliers are coming off a 2-5 season. The team is hoping to improve its overall record, but new head coach Eric Davis said this year his team is focusing on more than just winning.
This is the second time Davis is coaching the Cavaliers.
He returned to the high school level after coaching at the middle school.
Besides bringing his coaching talents to the team he's also bringing a new philosophy.
That philosophy is building a strong and ever-lasting program.
Davis said making sure to bring kids up from the middle school program into the high school level will help the team grow very fast.
He told Sports18 when middle schoolers can interact with future teammates and coaches, those players will want to stick around longer.
Davis knows building the team up from the bottom won't be easy, but it's necessary for the future.
Eric Davis said, "This year is about breaking it down to ground zero and building the kids in their skills, and schemes and techniques, and expectations, it's about starting at ground zero and just kind of building as we go and making sure that we are taking our time to do it the right way."
